Who’s that elegantly dressed woman walking down the street? It’s Tysa, on her way home from her job as a makeup artist in a Menlo Park salon. Normally she rides her bike home instead of walking it, but with a hat this fine why would she risk damaging it on the ride?

Where’s the baby? At day care in Palo Alto. Alec and his wife split child care drop-off duties. She does the am by car, he does the pm by bike. I’m guessing their little boy likes his ride home better. A front seat view with the wind in your face is hard to beat.

Tall bike? No problem for Marcos, although it’s not his preferred ride for San Jose Bike Party rides. He’s a penny farthing kind of guy. You might find him and his buddies on 3rd St just North of Santa Clara St in San Jose. Looks like there’s a bike shop brewing there…
